With all that education out of the way, let’s get down to business! The first step to finding your effective CBD dosage is to build a dosing plan that you’ll utilize. Start by identifying when you’re looking to the CBD:
At night: to improve sleep quality.
During the day: for relief from day-to-day impacting conditions.
During the day and night: for relief from significant ongoing conditions that impact daily function and nightly rest.
Next, you need to estimate your starting dosage. These ranges are based on the two most common types of CBD products – swallowed capsules/edibles or sublingual tinctures. Products like topicals and vape products are near impossible to measure the amount of CBD per dose. Use the guideline of ‘start low, go slow’ to find your ideal dose:
If you want to take a cautious approach:
* Take 10 – 15 mg of CBD per day for 2 – 3 days. The CBD improves as it builds up in your system. If you feel much better, stay with that dose.
* If you need to feel more relief, then take 20 – 30 mg of CBD per day for 2 – 3 days. If you feel much better, stay with that dose. Be consistent and patient. You should feel some results, but in some cases it can take a week or two to gauge your improvement.
* After 6 -7 days if you still want to feel better, increase the dose to 50 mg per day. Stay with that for 1 week. In some cases, 50 mg in the morning can be good followed by 20 – 50 mg at night. CBD stays in the system for about 12 hours.
If you want to take a more substantial approach:
* Take 25 mg of CBD per day for 2 days. This is NOT an aggressive dose at all.
* If you need to feel a faster relief, then take 50 mg of CBD per day for 2 days. If you feel much better, stay with that dose. CBD is clinically shown to be safe with almost no side effects (until doses of 600 – 1,000 mg/day are administered).
* After 4 – 5 days if you still want to feel better, increase the dose to 50 to 100 mg per day. Stay with that for 1 week. In some cases, 50 – 75 mg in the morning can be good followed by 50 – 75 mg at night. If you are trying to reduce a migraine headache, you’ll need to take 150 mg in one dose.
Your job is now to observe the effects and adjust accordingly. If it works for you, we recommend keeping notes on your dosages to refer back to. This can be valuable in helping more accurately adjust and finding a effective CBD dosage.
